“Joburg – never!”, “London – never!!”, these are words that Rehan uttered at school and university. “I would never go and stay there”…well, funny how this fellow from smalltown Burgersdorp, South Africa, then ended up in both just a few years later.
Rehan is an unlikely ultra-runner, that only started long distance running after receiving miraculous healing from debilitating knee injuries in 2017, two years after arriving on UK shores with his young family.
But since then, there has been no stopping him!
The healing brought with it a great sense of responsibility – Blessed to now go and be a blessing! Rehan has been purposefully expanding horizons, running for good and raising funds towards “ForAfrika” (previously known as Joint Aid Management), Africa’s largest indigenous non-governmental organisation.
Through his annual self- created challenges, Rehan has become ForAfrika’s largest individual fundraiser – impacting thousands of children through ForAfrika’s school feeding schemes throughout Africa.
Rehan’s family, his faith and church community grounds him and has been the catalyst for everything he undertakes. His focus is to share his testimony, using his platform and gifts to influence those around him, especially the next generation. It is his goal to continue to expand his positive impact and help people to step up and make a difference in their communities.
We are aiming to raise £100,000 to support vulnerable communities and feed malnourished children in the remotest parts of Africa. We have to get more people involved.
